Physical Education at Alexandra Primary School helps children to learn about keeping and leading fit, healthy and active lives. It allows children to develop body awareness and confidence. To develop physical competence so that all children are able to move efficiently and safely and understand what they are doing. Children learn about how keeping active will improve their physical and mental wellbeing now and in the future.
Children develop a range of skills that are built upon over time that can be used in individual and team sports. Children experience a range of activities including dance, gymnastics and athletics and team sports and experience competition in and out of school.
Our aims are for children to develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities and build their stamina so that children can be physically active for sustained periods of time. Children have the opportunity to engage in competitive sports and activities and be signposted for coaching to external organisations.
Planned, progressive learning that takes place in the school curriculum, which is delivered to all pupils. This involves both “learning to move” (i.e. becoming more physically competent) and “moving to learn” (learning through movement, a range of skills and understandings beyond the physical activity, such as co-operating with others).
